As some of you may know Cheryl and I home educate our kids. Kelvey though is taking band atPleasant Hill Elementary School, and she is in 5th Grade. We are in the Des Moines School District – they do middle schools (6th – 8th grade) and she would have to take band at Hiatt Middle School next year. She is a young 5th grader (we started her early), and do not think that is the best environment for her, so we’ve decided to get her enrolled next year at Four Mile Elementary School, which is in the S.E. Polk School District. Our church, Valley Church, has a 5th/6th grade ministry (Route 56) which Kelvey just loves. The student ministries at Valley just started a combined junior high/senior high service on Sunday mornings.
Anyway, I’d love to hear your thoughts about what churches should do, and what school districts should do. Thanks!
